World Cup

The World Cup began yesterday, to much worldwide excitement. The opening ceremony included a performance from Pitbull, J.Lo, and Claudia Leitte, as well as some dancing trees, which are part of today's adorable Google doodle! Following the ceremony, it was time for the game — but not before a moment of panic when Brazilian footballer Neymar da Silva Santos Júnior appeared to twist his ankle in the warm-up. However, he recovered in time for the World Cup opener, and Brazil pulled out a 3-1 win against Croatia. While the U.S. team won't have it's first game until Monday, there are still plenty of games to check out before then.

If you follow the FIFA World Cup, you may already know that every four years, the organization commissions an official anthem to represent the event. These multilingual songs are then used as warm-ups to the event, in addition to serving as a little momento from the big day.

Things got a little crazy yesterday on Twitter, at least when it came to MLB and some of its teams.

Orange is the New Black

Season two of "Orange is the New Black" was released today, and many are scrambling to binge on the entire season so they can avoid spoilers. As with all Netflix-produced shows, once a season is up, you can watch the entire thing all at once. It's a great feature if you want to watch the season at your leisure, without waiting week to week for new episodes; it's not-so-great when the internet ruins everything. A helpful reminder: when asking your friends if they've seen the new season, a simple "Have you watched the new 'Orange is the New Black' episodes yet?" will suffice. Don't say, "Oh my gosh, have you seen the episode where Piper dies?!" (BTW, Piper probably doesn't die.) It'll be tough navigating the internet spoiler-free for the next few weeks, so good luck out there.

The world is well aware of the success "Frozen" has had. The film's success has translated into an upcoming ice spectacular, as well as a Broadway show that's in the works. We feel chummy with Elsa and Anna, we know all the lyrics to "Let It Go," and we secretly wish we had a reindeer pet as cute as Sven.

But here are a few fun facts you may not have known about the successful film. (It should go without saying, but: major "Frozen" spoilers ahead.)

#1 - Rapunzel and Flynn Rider make an appearance at Elsa's coronation.

Blink and you'll miss it, but it's true. If you watch the crowd during Elsa coronation, you'll see both characters from "Tangled" (and yes, Rapunzel has her short, brown hair instead of the long, blond locks).
